When you are injured by a product, investigation is necessary to determine who is at fault. There are three types of product issues which may cause a personal injury:
- Design defects: This refers to any problems created while designing or planning a certain product. For example, if a chair has a design that makes it prone to falling over, we consider it a design defect.
- Manufacturing errors: This refers to any defects that occur during the actual manufacturing process of a product. In the case of our chair example, this would resemble a situation where a leg incorrectly attached.
- False Advertising/Failure to Warn: This occurs when a seller or manufacturer fails to provide sufficient instructions or warnings about using the product, or when they fail to adequately communicate the potential risks of the product.
A personal injury claim can involve multiple parties at fault due to the association of these three types of defects with different aspects of the production process. The designer, wholesaler, manufacturer, retailer, and advertiser, for example, could all potentially be liable for a defective product. At the very least, we need to conduct a thorough investigation to identify the appropriate parties.
